Privacy Policy

(Adapted from the American Library Association Privacy Policy: April 20, 2005)

Thank you for visiting the Oglala Lakota websites and reviewing our privacy statement. Oglala Lakota College is committed to protecting the privacy of our members, donors, customers, and other contacts. Our privacy policy is clear: We will collect no personal information about you when you visit our websites unless you choose to provide that information to us.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

During your visit as you browse through olc.edu, read pages, or download information, we will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit but not about you. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about the visit:

The Internet domain (for example, "xcompany.com" if a private Internet access account, or "aschool.edu" if connected from a university) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer whenever it is surfing the Web) from which access to our web site is gained:

  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • The date and time of access to our site;
  • The pages visited and for how long; and
  • The address of the website from which the initial visit to olc.edu was launched, if any.

We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors and to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. The data collected is not connected to your personal information or identity.

This Website contains links to other sites. Oglala Lakota College is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, which may be different from the privacy practices described in this policy. We encourage you to become familiar with privacy practices of other sites you visit, including linked sites.

Sec. 1001 and 1030. Information also may be used for authorized law enforcement investigations.
